Preemie Outfit #5 – A-Line Gown

A simple, yet pretty gown for your perfect preemie.

1984 Clothing Series Summary


There are 2 pieces to this outfit.

  1. Cotton gown. The top portion is sort of separate from the bottom skirt area and generally a different pattern/colour. The bottom edge of that piece is scalloped and edge in coloured thread. The remainder of the gown and the sleeves are a solid colour. The gown has a peter pan collar. The bottom hem, sleeves, and bonnet are edged in the same lace. It does up with velcro at the back at the top but doesn’t do up past the waist. There is a ribbon that comes from the sides and does up at the back.
  2. Bonnet. It is the same pattern used in the chest area. It is edged with the same colour thread and also had a row of lace along the inside edge.
